On tap at the brewhouse taproom in July 2017. Nice hops aromas; hugely out of balance in flavor and bitterness toward in-your-face hoppiness. I found it enjoyable, but not overly distinctive compared to any number of other huge hop bomb IPAs.

22 oz. Bomber
Bottled On: 5/9/17

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice hazy dark golden orangy color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight maltyness, nice touch of citrus, nice diesel like. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, slightly malty, very nice touch of citrus, nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, another pretty tasty brew from La Cumbre. Nice to see this one around here.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Cloudy golden yellow color with a short lived white head and good lacing. Smell of vanilla, pine and oranges. Silky feel. The taste is a bit boozy , with caramel, citrus, and lots of hoppy bitterness. Comes off like an imperial IPA.

On tap at Hunahpu Day. Been wanting to try this for a long time now. Clear golden. Smells, as described, dank. Some tropical fruit behind the herbal and dank hops. Tastes of green, resiny, and citrusy hops. Sweet pale malt. Low bitterness. Medium body and a little sweet. Very good.

Big thanks to shuntstout for sending this bottle! Reviewed from (very) long-standing notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Cycle Brewing pint glass.

A: Hazy gold, with average visible carbonation and a half-finger of white foamy head.

S: Dank hops up front (of course), with resin, grapefruit rind, grassy and herbal notes backing it up. Some bready malts underneath.

T: More citrus-forward than the nose suggested, mostly grapefruit and tangerine. Grassy and dank as well, with the bready malts adding a touch of sweetness (but with no caramel malt flavors to speak of). Finishes with dank and resinous flavors.

M: The body is about average, maybe tending towards the heavy side for style. Good carbonation sensation, the alcohol flavors are very well-hidden.

O: This was quite tasty. And it had more citrus flavors than I expected. Very enjoyable.
